Stayed at La Cala Resort from 13th to 20th October and ate at this restaurant 3 times. The restaurant is located on the road between La Cala de Mijas and La Cala Resort. We notice the sign for the restaurant when we were driving to the resort on our day of arrival and from the road the restaurant did not loo particularly inviting. However, it was recommended to us on the third day of our week long holiday by someone we played golf with and they were not wrong.

Fast and attentive service (waitresses were Thai, Spanish, Russian and a few other nationalities so there should be no problem with language), really good food and wine all at a reasonable price.

Stayed at La Cala Resort from 13th to 20th October 2013 and ate at El Jinette 3 times. Service excellent, food some of the best I have ever had in Spain and the prices were reasonable.

The restaurant is located between La Cala de Mijas and the La Cala Resort on the right hand side as you head toward La Cala Resort. Initially we were put off by the appearance of the restaurant from the road but were advised by someone we played golf with at La Cala that the restaurant was very good and they were not wrong.

I can't believe that it is ranked only 10th in the area.

Great food, value and service have been with music which is 22 euro for three courses also without music 17 euro never once disappointed the steaks are excellent and not like some restaurants where very often steak has a surcharge.
Going to La Cala now for 5/6 years always visit this restaurant on two three times each visit.

We had the 22 euro set dinner menu as it was Live Music night. The gambas pil pil seemed 'non-Spanish', filet mignon tasty, banoffee cheesecake just tasted of gelatine. Waitress service was Welsh, Russian, Chinese and ok. The live music was excellent.

Had a fantastic meal here on one of the music nights, set menu 22 euros excellent value including the live music. Fortunately I booked as even though it was a Monday night the inside restaurant was full, very good waitress service nothing was too much trouble, met friends there who had not been before and they were very impressed and will be eating here again.
